Beautifully Illustrated Christmas Story Books

posted in: Christmas 0

Children’s books have always appealed to me due to the lavishly colourful illustrations and magical storytelling. Young children in particular love to be read stories at bedtime, their eyes full of wonderment as the pages are turned. Unfortunately some children have not experienced the delights of real books but you can help.

These Christmas story picture books which have been beautifully illustrated can be read for free after signing up for free on the We Give Books Website. Whilst not real books, they can be viewed electronically on a computer or IPad and they have a simulated page turning effect. By reading these books with your children you will also be helping a great Cause.
